WV:UPDATE: Neighbor Stops Home Invaders by Shooting One and Holding Other at Gunpoint
WSAZ ^ | 23 December, 2013 | Rahel Solomon

LOGAN COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ)-- Two men are facing charges after police say they were caught red-handed trying to break into a Logan County home Saturday morning.

Terry Robbins, a neighbor and family member, caught the two suspects in the house and says he was forced to shoot one of the alleged burglars when he tried to attack him.

Robbins told WSAZ.com Saturday morning around 5:30 his aunt and uncle called saying their security alarm was triggered. Robbins says when he arrived at the house shortly after, he found Jimmy Walker and Justin Blair. Robbins says he and Walker are distant relatives.

Robbins says he brought a pistol with him for his own protection and when he saw the suspects told them to get on the ground until police came.

“I told them both, just please get on the ground, I’ve got a gun, I'll shoot you, don't try anything just get on the ground until the police get here,” Robbins said.

Robbins said before police could arrive, Walker tried to attack him so he shot Walker in the stomach. Robbins says he's been told he likely will not face charges.

I love these Winter Break stories with happy endings. Just feel bad for the guy who had to waste some of his ammunition on a couple scumbags.

That's not a waste of ammo; that's the ultimate fulfillment of ammo's purpose.

I fell behind a bit during the holidays and am catching up. I hope to be caught up by tomorrow.

But Eric Holder is another story.

There is a convergence of events seeming to happen that may indicate a plan to implement Martial Law before November elections.

Including 1 million people losing unemployment ‘benefits’ next week.

Food riots in the streets would demand it

As far as I'm concerned, if the surgeon and nurses do their jobs properly, he won't ever be available.

Of course it did. Have you ever traveled in southern WV? Roads as wide as a wagon path, no rails,steep as the Matterhorn, and crooked as a snake. Switchbacks you wouldn't drive around faster than 15MPH. Oh, and the law has a lot of territory to cover. That's why we love WV.

Chesty Puller would say, “That’s the way, son”.

I love a happy ending.
